Meringue Cookies are bite-sized, sweet, light and airy! Meringue cookies are made with just 3 ingredients! Egg whites, sugar and flavoring is all it takes!
Servings 24 cookies
- 4 egg whites
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp favorite extract (I like vanilla, raspberry or strawberry!)
- 2 cups chocolate candy melts
Preheat oven to 170°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Using either a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Slowly and gradually add in the sugar, mixing well in between each addition.
Mix in the extract and gel food coloring if desired.
Transfer the cookie batter to a large piping bag.
Pipe the cookies out onto the parchment paper. The cookies will not spread at all while baking.
Bake at 170° for 2 hours.
Remove the cookies from the oven after they have baked for 2 hours and allow the cookies to cool on the pan.
While the cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate candy melts. Spread a thin layer onto the bottom of each cookie and then drizzle the remaining chocolate on top.
